Public Engagement

Public programming at the Center draws on the rich resources of Reid Hall, the Columbia campus, the Global Centers network, and European cultural and academic institutions. Here, we have created a "third space" of intellectual exploration and inquiry that resists easy categorization. This engagement brings together a diverse audience to address urgent, contemporary global issues through creative, rigorous, and open dialogue. We achieve this through a public speaker series, conferences and workshops, and student and alumni involvement.
